It takes money to win football and basketball games. Money, of course, talks.

And when it does, for the Texas Longhorns, the best coaches tend to walk ... in our direction.

That’s the point behind a new piece of commentary in 247Sports, which highlights the very big, very pretty paychecks it took ($54 million and $34 million, respectively, to get the Sarkisian and Beard eras underway, not to mention the $25 million in buyout money needed for Tom Herman to officially leave town) to make it happen. As 247Sports notes, “If 2013 was the low point of Texas turning on itself in a desperate attempt to hang on or reclaim its success in the first decade of the 2000s – the Golden Age of Longhorns’ athletics – then there’s a good chance we’ll look back at 2021 as the point when UT athletics regained its mojo.”

Let’s hope so. To read the full story, click on the link.
